The state of Oklahoma has replaced its Ten Commandments monument after the original one was destroyed last fall.

In October, a 29-year-old man drove his car across the Capitol lawn and crashed into the monument, smashing it into pieces.

Police arrested him the next day and he was admitted to a hospital for mental health treatment. Formal charges were never filed.

The replacement 6-foot-tall headstone-like granite monument is identical to the original and an exact replica of the Ten Commandments monument at the Texas Capitol.

Oklahoma erected the original one in 2012 after a Republican-controlled legislature passed a bill authorizing it and then-Gov. Brad Henry, a Democrat, signed it into law.
